Your work is exemplary in style. How do you decide on a bride’s look?
It’s rather simple! The look depends on the bride’s outfit and jewellery. This has always helped me in deciding what look to pick for the bride, so that she looks her most extraordinarily beautiful self on the special day!
Then of course, you might have brides who insist on having a certain style of makeup.
Yes, it’s not uncommon. However it is always better to have clarity with the bride and help her decide on the look that will suit her the most. I pay attention to her face and eye shape, and of course, the colour scheme. It is rewarding to work with brides and assist them in choosing the colours and textures that enhance their features and avoiding those that dull down the face.
Of course! The current bridal makeup trend for 2017 is minimalistic, with a dewy, healthy complexion and highlight on the high points of the face. The other most popular trend and my own personal favourite colour for the eyes this season is Rosegold. Simply dabbing this colour on the centre of the eyelid completes the look, along with a pair of flattering eyelashes. This is usually paired with a deep maroon or magenta-crimson lip.
Skin tones and undertones are the biggest difference in creating the perfect base. There is variation in choosing makeup amongst Indian and international brides: international brides lean towards natural/neutral makeup looks, whereas Indian brides prefer a shimmery, bold colour alongside the neutrality of face makeup
My blender! Whether it is to blend foundation, or simply dab on some cream, I cannot do without my blender. The other product I swear by is the Urban Decay De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray: this is what completes the look and makes sure it lasts as long as possible.
Any tips for brides when it comes to looking their most radiant?
Take it easy, and bring down your stress levels! Everything else will fall into place immediately. Beautiful, wide-awake eyes are a must, as is a fresh, fully rested, healthy complexion. So look after yourself!
